Contributions to the Museum’s endowment can be made as a direct lifetime gift or a planned gift through your estate. Including the Museum in your plans is one way to provide stability and continuity to the institution you value today. Gift planning can also provide you with significant financial benefits. There are dozens of creative and flexible ways to make contributions. It's easier than you think and it’s not only for the very wealthy.

To request more information or discuss your estate plans in confidence, contact Linda Larkin, Associate Director of Major and Planned Gifts, at 510-318-8516.
